Connecticut Stock Epi Bill
A bill is about to be heard in the Connecticut House Public Health Committee that would allow schools to stock emergency epinephrine for anyone who needs it. HB5521 would allow schools to stock doses of epinephrine and allow school nurses and trained staff to administer the epinephrine to anyone suffering an allergic reaction.

Support Food Allergy Research
Urge Congress to Fund More Food Allergy Research! The National Institutes of Health supports a modest level of food allergy research -- even though more than 15 million Americans suffer from food allergies. Tell Congress we need to spend more on finding cures!
Food Allergy Awareness Week is just around the corner, from May 11-17! We need to build support and recognition among policy makers so we can continue to increase public awareness about food allergies. FARE is asking state governors and local officials to issue proclamations recognizing and supporting the needs of the food allergic community. And you can help! Send this message and urge your governor to issue a proclamation!
